Introducing the Storkcraft Easy Walk-Thru Metal Safety Gate, a versatile, pet-friendly, and easy-to-install safety gate. At 27 inches tall, this metal safety gate is ideal for children and larger pets. This safety gate expands from 23.5 inches to 42 inches wide, making it a versatile choice for your home. This safety gate’s simple design aesthetic allows it to subtly and seamlessly blend with any room in your home. It mounts directly to the wall for maximum stability (wall mounting hardware included) and can swing open in both directions (or just one). Its one-hand quick-release locking system provides you with convenience when carrying your child or pet. Like all Storkcraft expansion gates and expandable enclosures, the Easy Walk-Thru Metal Safety Gate is certified by the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) and is meticulously tested to meet or exceed all applicable Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) and American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) safety standards. NOTE: Never install gate at top of the stairs.
